      Description

      It would be desirable for the SP to be able to optimise fetching of remote metadata using a combination of HEAD/etag/last changed date information so that a new copy was only downloaded if the remote copy had changed.

      (entered against OpenSAML 2 because the equivalent issue for the IdP is in OpenSAML)

      Equivalent IdP issue: https://bugs.internet2.edu/jira/browse/JOST-102

      (Note that I had previously thought that the IdP already did this, but that turned out not to be the case.)
